THE LOCATION

Horniman Drive offers something both rare and unique. The entrance to one of southeast London’s popular family attractions, the Horniman Museum and Gardens, is located extremely close to the property. This is so convenient that the gardens of the Horniman’s are a secondary outside space for the residents of in the immediate area.

For those buyers who aren’t familiar with the Horniman museum and gardens we recommend you have a look online and visit when you are in the area.

To have something of this nature on your doorstep will appeal to many buyers. With regular events such as a farmer’s market and gardens that children adore, (sound garden and animals in particular), this will be of paramount interest to families.

If the above isn’t enough to tempt you, a more general view of the area will give insight into why Forest Hill has become increasingly popular in recent years and been featured on the popular TV programme “Location Location Location” several times.

Forest Hill has much to offer from boutique shops, thriving independent businesses on the high street, a great selection of green spaces and recreational facilities to great transport links and highly regarded schools.

DINING OUT AND RECREATION

Some of our favourite local eateries span across both Forest Hill and Honor Oak (both towns come under the same postcode) and include Mama Dough and Bona (sour dough pizza restaurants), Canvas and Cream (great local café serving a selection of cakes, food and drink. They also host some art exhibitions) and the award-winning Babur Indian restaurant. There's also the popular Le Querce which is run by a Sardinian family serving traditional dishes.

Alongside the Horniman, other local attractions include One Tree Hill at the top of Honor Oak Rise and offers some of the most breath-taking views across London and the city skyline. In our opinion this is a hidden gem.

You will also find nature reserves in proximity of the property on Devonshire Road and Garthorne Road.

There is a selection of walking trails locally via the highly acclaimed Sydenham Hill woods and Albion Millennium Green to name just a couple.

You might be surprised to note there is a golf course in the local area. The ever-popular Dulwich and Sydenham golf course is an 18-hole course founded in 1894 and designed by one of the most significant course architects of all time. It has views over the woods and of Dulwich college. You may read more about the golf course here:

Forest Hill Library and pools have both undergone complete renovation in recent years. Forest Hill pools has fantastic swimming facilities but also has a well-equipped gym and exercise classes.

Blythe Hill Fields is known by the locals for its recreational facilities and regular events. One such facility is the Trim trail which is an exercise trail and we mustn’t forget the yearly Blythe Hill festival that brings local business and the community together for a day of fun.
